Gathering material from a wealth of life experiences, Jose takes audiences on the rollercoaster ride that’s been his life. Born in Cuba and deported because of his father’s political prisoner status, he came to the U.S. at a young age. Growing up with a hard working, and always quirky, Cuban family brought loads of funny moments everyday.
From his mother’s ability to kill a chicken with her bare hands, to his Dad’s ability to hit on any woman, anytime, there was never a dull moment. What they did best was teach him to work hard for his dreams, and not forget how to laugh at life and himself. He made them proud when, after high school, he was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. He became an officer in the Air Force, is an accomplished aviator, and is a veteran having served in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He’s been all over the world and has even been shot at in two countries. This and more he brings to the stage believing that, “if you can’t laugh at a hard time in your life, you ain’t over it yet.”
His comedy career started out in New York and Philadelphia, getting on stage anytime he wasn’t serving. He performs all over the country now and is rapidly becoming an audience favorite for his ability to make deportation, and life threatening moments hysterical.
He’s been featured in the Air Force Times, was selected for the 2007 Latino Laugh Festival in Los Angeles, and the Lucky 21 Contest at The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. In 2008 he won the Funniest Person In South Texas Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition.

He is the co-host of NUVO TV’s Stand Up and Deliver which airs it’s fourth season in 2015. Most nights you can find him on stage somewhere, but one week a month its all dog tags and volleyball, down in Texas, teaching the next generation of top guns the basics. Read more...

Hailed by his peers as one of the smartest comedians in the country, Bob Dubac raises the bar of stand-up comedy high above the mediocrity of television. If you are tired of the not-so-special comedy specials you see on cable then don’t miss Bob Dubac.

Comedian Dean Edwards has been making his mark in comedy following two successful seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson, and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as Man in Elevator and Cop #2, Edwards has pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion. Always the multitasker, Edwards found the momentum to juggle his Saturday Night Live career, his numerous stand-up appearances, and multiple television appearances. Edwards most recently appeared in Showtime’s Comics Without Borders, the nine-week comedy series which showcased multicultural stand up comedians. Currently devoting his career to his first love, stand-up comedy, Edwards will release a comedy DVD with Salient Media in mid-2009.
In addition to stand-up, Edwards has made several late-night appearances, including The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Last Call with Carson Daly. He is also a favorite and frequent guest on Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed and is frequently providing comedic commentary on various VH1 highlight shows. Director Malcolm D. Lee also chose Edwards to finish Bernie Mac’s voice/ADR work on Soul Men after the comedian’s untimely death. Edwards also provided the voice-over of Barack Obama on the new CNN show, DL Hughley Breaks the News.
Born in the Bronx and raised throughout various parts of New York, Edwards' travels have made it easy for him to communicate with all walks of life. After dividing his college career between classes and a six-year term in the United States Army Reserve, Edwards ultimately made the choice to devote his career to comedy. Although his fellow soldiers loved his impressions of their drill sergeant, Edwards spent many an afternoon doing push-ups to pay for his comedic talent. That talent paid off and Edwards found his career when he participated in his college talent show. Armed with a degree in communications, Edwards became an in-demand comic and landed his first big break on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam. Though the show is renowned for its blue humor, Edwards found a way to break the traditional mold with his mainstream appeal.
Subsequently, he was a featured comedian on Showtime at the Apollo a few years later. Edwards followed his television appearances by starring in numerous commercials, and he also worked with Spike Lee on the hit feature film, The Original Kings of Comedy. Edwards has since earned a reputation as a headlining favorite at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. Read more...
